What happens to my application after I have submitted it?

You will receive an immediate email confirmation that your application has been received along with details of your reference number. Within a few days of submitting your online application, you will receive an email confirmation regarding your status.

If your application meets our initial criteria, you will progress to the next stage of our selection process. You will then be contacted by email or telephone by one of our recruiters to discuss the next steps in selection – likely to include scheduling or conducting a brief phone interview. Your profile will also be retained in our recruiting database for possible matches against future open positions.

We will keep in touch with you regularly, typically via email, so that you fully understand your status for the specific position for which you are being considered.

If your application does not meet our initial criteria, you will not be considered further for that specific job. However, your profile will be kept in our recruiting database. If a match should occur between your profile and future open positions, you will be notified by email and invited to return to our website to apply.

How can I check on the status of my application?

All applicants can log back in and check on the status of their application(s). Click “Returning Candidate Log In” at the top right of the careers site. From there, you will be prompted to provide your login email and password that you used when applying. You will then be taken to your Dashboard to see all the positions you’ve applied to and the status of each.

How long will it take to review my resume/application?

We handle all applications in a timely manner. You will receive an acknowledgement e-mail from WellStar after you submit your application for a specific job, and typically within 48 hours you will be notified whether or not you have met the minimum requirements for the role. We will contact you if you are invited for a phone or face-to-face interview. For those who are not suitable for the position, we will automatically keep your details in our system for future opportunities.

If I receive an email saying that I am not being considered for a job, can I be reconsidered?

As part of the online application process you will have answered questions and your qualifications will be reviewed to determine whether you meet the minimum requirements or essential criteria described in the job description. If you do not meet the minimum requirements for a specific job, you will not be considered for the job. However, we encourage you to continue to review jobs that match your profile and apply to those you are interested in and where your qualifications match the requirements described in the job description.

How can I verify that my application has been properly submitted and/or received?

Each time you apply for a position at WellStar, you will receive an immediate confirmation email acknowledging that your application has been received, and all your contact information, profile and résumé are made available to the recruiter handling that position.

What sort of questions will I be asked during the application process, and how will my answers be used?

In the course of your application to WellStar, we will request responses to specific questions. Some are to match your skills and qualifications with the role and others are to ensure we comply with applicable laws and WellStar’s business policies. Should you be successful in your application to WellStar, your responses to key questions will be verified.

I did not receive a confirmation email after submitting an application for a job. What should I do?

After submitting your application to a job you should receive an email confirming that your application has been received. It may take up to 48 hours for you to receive this message. If, after 48 hours, you have still not received the email confirmation:

check that you submitted to the job using the correct email address and that there were no misspellings

check your junk email or spam email folder in case it has been misdirected there

Do I need to apply for every role I am interested in and submit a new application or can I apply once?

You are required to submit a new application for each position you would like to be considered for.

How will my data be stored and used in the system?

Your records will be stored in our system indefinitely, and can only be accessed by WellStar recruiters.  Your Assessment stays on file for one year. Any equal employment opportunities information you provide during the recruitment process will be stored separately from your application and is for compliance monitoring purposes only.

Can I submit my resume without applying for a specific position?

You may submit your application/resume speculatively in the system as our recruiters will search for candidates in our database; however, you stand a much better chance of being considered for a role at WellStar if you apply to a specific role that matches your skills and experience.

Do you accept applications by email/mail/fax or hand delivered to a recruiter?

Our policy advises that all applications be officially submitted online through WellStarCareers.org. However, if you are unable to do so via our system, for example because you are using assistive technologies, please contact us and we will advise you of what to do next. Email us at Careers@wellstar.org.

Who can I contact if I have questions?

Questions can be directed to Careers@wellStar.org.

Is there a limit to how many jobs I can apply for?

There is no limit to the number of jobs you can apply to, however we strongly encourage you to be sure you meet the required minimum qualifications for all positions you apply to.
